Crime Classics

Each episode began with this description: "A series of true crime stories from the records and newspapers of every land, from every time. Your host each week, is Mr. Thomas Hyland -- connoisseur of crime, student of violence, and teller of murders." The voice of the fictional connoisseur of crime Thomas Hyland was that of deep voiced Lou Merrill. This show aired on the CBS radio network from June 15, 1953, to June 30, 1954.
